A sustainable space

Our world-leading sustainability research, addressing the climate and ecological crises, informs the changes we’re making here at UCL, right in the heart of London’s leafy Bloomsbury.

We are making change possible


Sustainability is at the heart of how we operate. UCL’s award-winning sustainable campus is already powered by 100% renewable electricity and we send no waste to landfill, but our longer-term vision is much more ambitious. 

As a student at UCL, you will have the opportunity to join one of our many sustainability socities, get growing on campus on our student-led allotment, or sign up to be a Sustainability Ambassador.

We are transforming UCL

UCL's Student Centre is one of the greenest, most sustainable buildings in the UK.

Bathed in natural daylight, it is equipped with solar panels and benefits from reduced water consumption and a green roof to reduce its carbon footprint.

Our net zero carbon goals 

By 2024, all our buildings will be net zero carbon and free from single-use plastics; we will have 10,000m2 more biodiverse green space. Our goal is to be a net zero carbon institution by 2030.

Through our teaching programmes, we pass on our knowledge of sustainable best-practice to our students, to ensure that they become sustainability advocates to benefit the wider world.
